Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

Is anybody else experiencing strange behavior with this plugin under Textpattern 4.2.0? I noticed that some of my excerpts are way longer than specified in the tag— for instance:

This…

<txp:rss_auto_excerpt striptags="1" sentences="3" showlinkwithexcerpt="0"/>

…gives me a three paragraph excerpt. Formerly, I set it to paragraphs="1" and got the entire article as the excerpt. Something is amiss.

This behavior may be triggered with striptags="1"— this, code works as in every ealier version of Textpattern:

<txp:rss_auto_excerpt paragraphs="1"/>

One paragraph, no fuss.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

@johnstephens I’m having the same problem, truncation is not happening.

Maybe it’s me — not used this plugin before.

I am on the 4.0.8 branch from Gerhard Lazu (glz_custom_fields).


At LAST I’ve cheerfully donated to the core devs at #TXP. I only wish I were able to give more. Thanks to the devs and ALL fellow TXPers. -A

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

Woo! I guess I’m not crazy then. I never noticed any problems with this plugin under 4.0.8, but I wasn’t using Gerhard’s fork.

I wonder if anyone will adopt this very useful plugin?

Yes, me too, but are you sure it wasn’t happening before 4.2.0?

This behavior may be triggered with striptags="1"

I am using paragraphs="2" with striptags="0", so there were no problems. When I change the striptags value to 1, the entire article is displayed. But now that I think about it, if the paragraph tags are stripped, how can the plugin recognise (and count) the paragraphs?
In another place I’m using words="30" striptags="1", no problem there.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

Hi there,

The plugin is working fine. Just having a little issue working out how to place the ‘Read more’ link into the same line as the excerpt. I know there has been an addition to the plugin for this (wrapreadmore), however I’m a little confused as to how to use this. Have tried a few variations, but no luck. Also, as the wilshereone site seems to be down right now, i’m wondering if I have the latest version of the plugin it says 0.5 but there is no wrapreadmore tag in the help file).

Here is my code is it stands right now:

<txp:if_article_category name="blog">
<h4><txp:permlink class="caller"><txp:title /></txp:permlink></h4>
<txp:rss_auto_excerpt length="340" showlinkwithexcerpt="0" wrapreadmore="1" ending="..." linkwraptag="span" />
<txp:permlink>Read more</txp:permlink>
</txp:if_article_category>

Any feedback on this will be really appreciated,

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

OK, here my code for the article list on the homepage:

<txp:rss_auto_excerpt length="550" showlinkwithexcerpt="0" linktext="Mehr &hellip;" ending="&hellip;" overrideexcerpt="1" striptags="1" linkwraptag="strong" excerptwraptag="p" />

Parameter showlinkwithexcerpt="0" is responsible for not showing the link at the end of the paragraph. I used to show the link and this is why all the necessary arguments are still in the form.

From the help:

showlinkwithexcerpt
Determines whether the permlink to the article will be shown when the automatic excerpt is displayed. Default value: 1
Alternative: showlinkwithexcerpt=“0”

And yes, AFAIK 0.5 is the latest version.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

Markus, first of all, thanks for the response, you have been most helpful on these forums!

The problem I was having was that I was specifying my own link tag instead of using ‘linktext’. So thanks for looking into that.
Just wondering how i set the style on the perm link now? As due to it being part of the rss_auto_excerpt I seem to be having trouble styling it. Looks like it should be ‘link class’ doesn’t seem to be working for me.

Working with this at the moment:

<h4><txp:permlink class="ptext"><txp:title /></txp:permlink></h4>
<txp:rss_auto_excerpt length="256" showlinkwithexcerpt="1" linktext="Read more" ending="..." overrideexcerpt="1" striptags="1" excerptwraptag="p" wrapreadmore="1" linkwraptag="span" linkclass="ptext" />

Note that this doesn’t add a class to the <a> tag, but wraps a <span class="ptext"> around it. So don’t style a.ptext, but .ptext a.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

The website seems to be down, at least in the last weeks. Anyone can provide me with version 0.5 of this wonderful plug-in?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards

Torsten

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

I sent you the code via your email link.
To my big surprise I don’t have a backup (that’s how professional do it).
Not sure where to get the text.

HELP :)

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

Markus – fwiw – I use ied_plugin_composer when I need to save a copy of the text version.

Moderators: Since this is an orphaned plugin, and since the site is down . . . is it appropriate to post it here? If not, I’ll edit to remove. Thanks, Mike.
